    Just Wondering

    Can't help but wonder why the guests visiting this site usually outnumber the members 100 to 1. Does anyone know the reason?

    If I did the math right I came up with 48 to 1.

    Do you have any idea why? At one point earlier it was close to 100 to 1. Either way it seems to me a lot of these folks would join us.

    My guesses;
    1. "Guests" are looking for assistance or help.
    2. Members typically have daytime jobs and "visit" (logon) after hours.
    3. Many regular "Guests" may have been members that got Banned and can't become members again.

    I know that I don't login about 80% of the time unless I have a decent answer to a question or need to ask "The Brain Trust (H-Talk has some of the best minds in the industry)" for help.
    If sense were so common everyone would have it !

    Good thoughts Cagey57. I never thought of your third guess.

    This is a great site and you would think anyone remotely involved with HVAC would want to join after looking at it. I looked at other sites before I found this one and none of them hold a candle.

    A lot of it is people getting search engine hits and leading them here.
    They can still see whatever hit on the search without joining.

    Welcome CoolGuy4987. A lot of threads here are not only fun to be part of but we share our knowledge. My input is a lot less than a lot of the others because I was never an installer and didn't work directly on the equipment.

    Don't let WAYNE fool you. He's a air balance professional.
    Lots of information in his head.

    Thanks VTP99 but I have learned more here than any place since I got out of school. That was 1969 and this thread would have been great had it existed back then.
